BREATHE 2016 was created immediately in response to the 2016 AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
Dimensions: Unframed: 6" H x 13" W
Framed: approximately 14"H x 21" W. The original painting is set into an 8 ply archival matt with a bevel cut window. The frame is simple profile + white.
The color blue is softand irridescent. The text is inscribed and washed/filled with a cream color paint.
Note: text is broken and echoes a brick wall, a fortress. BREATHE is the centerpiece/foreground; the nexus; the calm within the storm and the CALL OUT! The X in the circles allude to crossroads and "orienting" compasses finding a TRUE North.
This piece will be presented atSEPTEMBER GALLERY, Hudson, NY.
